Scarpetta Squadra Bianco Terre Siciliane 2014 Product #31786 (In Stock)
Scarpetta Squadra Bianco Terre Siciliane 2014 Scarpetta Squadra Bianco Terre Siciliane 2014

Scarpetta was started by a couple of French Laundry alums who now run a great Northern Italian restaurant in Colorado.  They've worked with friends in Italy to create a line of wines designed for pure enjoyment - all food friendly and great at table, but also juicy and generous enough for casual sipping, too.

This is their take on a Sicilian field blend, combining native grapes Grillo and Catarratto with fermentation and aging entirely in tank.  It's a big mouthful of pineapple, stone fruit, and citrus that starts bright, rounds out with good richness, and then finishes crisp, fresh, and tangy.  An easy-drinking, all-purpose, white that punches well above our very low sale price!

Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015 Product #30615 (In Stock)
Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015 Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015

The brothers Couillaud are among the most outstanding winegrowers of the western Loire Valley.  And while their Muscadet is terrific, it was this complex and distinctive Chardonnay that captured our attention.  The 2015 harvest yielded plump, ripe, Chardonnay fruit with plenty of heft and balancing acidity.  They fermented about 8% in barrel and the rest in concrete tanks, allowing all of the wine to go through malolactic fermentation.  The result is an amazingly rich, creamy, almost Meursault-like Chardonnay with the zesty cut and minerality of a top Chablis.  Honey, cream, chalk, and tart green apple aromas and flavors are delivered with nice energy and drive and linger on a long, mouthwatering, brilliantly complex finish.  A tad richer and deeper than the 2014, but just as pure and mineral and delicious.

Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015 Product #31862 (In Stock)
Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015 Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015

If you're looking for subtle, elegant, sophisticated California Cabernet...then look elsewhere.  Because this is rowdy, pumped up, boldly fruited, vanilla and chocolate-laced Cab with French oak spice and a finish as plump as a feather pillow.  Importer and Master Sommelier Fran Kysela created the Rubus label so he could find under-appreciated fruit in great growing regions and turn it into crowd-pleasing wines a wallet-delighting prices.  This is the best we've tasted in the series, with good heft (at just 13.5% abv) and oodles of chocolate-covered cherry fruit and sweet oak spice.  Soft enough to sip at a casual cookout, bold enough to enjoy with burgers, steaks or lamb, and affordable enough to share with a crowd.

Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012 Product #30857 (In Stock)
Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012 Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012

This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the broad, warm, Thracian Plain in Bulgaria's south, just north of Greece and west of the Black Sea.  Ripe Cabernet fruit reaches the winery cool and receives just the right amount of time on the skins before finishing aging in tank.  Plenty of chocolaty richness here, with big black raspberry and currant fruit and accents of tobacco and cedar.  Michel Rolland consults here, and his touch with tannins shows in the smooth, velvety, finish.  A fantastic value you'll enjoy with anything roasted or grilled.

"Dark garnet to the eye, this wine has aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, coffee and freshly ground black pepper. Flavors of height-of-summer cherry, raspberry and baking spice persist on the palate through a finish that is awash in silky tannins."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2015 Product #31053 (In Stock)
Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2015 Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2015

Aromas of peaches, green melon, apricot, and a hint of white flowers tempt you to take a sip. On the palate those ripe stone fruit flavors persist, but it finishes with a seltzery, saline minerality that makes it very dry and refreshing. This is a wine made for fresh seafood, but it’ll do just fine as a delicious aperitif and sings with salads, too!

“A highly expressive bouquet evokes fresh peach, melon and passionfruit, and a minerally nuance adds vivacity. Silky and open-knit, offering sappy orchard and pit fruit flavors that slowly tighten up on the back half. Deftly plays richness off vivacity and finishes long and smooth, featuring an echo of ripe peach and bracing ginger and mineral notes.”  Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

“Gloriously aromatic with jasmine and flint notes; very scented. Full and fleshy palate with a mineral follow-through and an intense, harmonious finish. A very lovely Albariño that is so pure.” Decanter 92 points

Best vintage ever here. Refreshing aromas of green apple, fresh peach, and orange-tinged citrus.  You’ll love how the ripe apple, pear, and pineapple fruit gets lifted across your palate by a faint accent of spicy ginger.  Your mouth will water as the clean, fresh, stone and orchard fruit flavors just get fresher from lingering notes of lemon and lime. A great poolside and party value!

J. Mourat Chenin - Chardonnay Val De Loire 2015 Product #30660 (In Stock)
J. Mourat Chenin - Chardonnay Val De Loire 2015 J. Mourat Chenin - Chardonnay Val De Loire 2015

A rich but vibrant white made from the Loire Valley’s most important white grape – the Chenin Blanc made famous by Vouvray – and Burgundy’s Chardonnay grape, which has thrived in warmer spots here for years.  The vineyards are in the Fiefs Vendeens AOC, just a few miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean.  The balance of warm Maritime sunshine and brisk Atlantic breezes allow the grapes to ripen fully while retaining plenty of summer refreshment value and cut.

Delivers a wild blend of citrus (white grapefruit and lemon rind) aromas with accents of tree fruits like apples and peaches. On the palate it’s wonderfully fresh and bright from first to last, with notes of peach, apricot and apple lingering under zesty lime juice acidity.  A joyful wine of great distinction to simply sip or pair with summer salads and seafood.

Poppy Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands 2014 Product #30882 (In Stock)
Poppy Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands 2014 Poppy Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands 2014

A young winery - founded in 2003 - with a pretty simple mission:  Make wine folks will enjoy!  And that's what this fun, fruit-filled, and lightly oaked Chardonnay does very well.  It's all from Poppy's vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands, first planted in 1972.  Warm sunshine got the grapes fully ripe and bursting with flavor.  Cool nights kept the acids fresh and held the alcohol down to a nicely balanced 13.5%.  About 30% of the wine was done in stainless steel - for fresh, bright fruit - and the rest with oak for creamy richness and complexity.

The 2014 is even better than the 90 point 2013.  You'll find plenty of richness here, with good dollops of grilled pineapple, ripe pear, golden apple, buttery oak and a round, creamy, texture. Turns more crisp in the mouth with apple and bright pear fruit and notes of green apple and butter lingering nicely.  A great party Chard for casual sipping and pretty darn versatile at table, too!

Dom d'Ourea Tire Bouchon Vin De France 2015 Product #31175 (In Stock)
Dom d'Ourea Tire Bouchon Vin De France 2015 Dom d'Ourea Tire Bouchon Vin De France 2015

"Tire Bouchon" is the French phrase for a corkscrew, but the literal translation is better:  Cork Puller.  And you're going to pull a lot of these corks this fall and winter! This is a throw-back (in terms of both time and how you'll drink it!) red made from Grenache, Syrah, and 10% old-timey Aramon and Oeillade Noire.  While it's all grown in Adrien Roustan's Vacqueyras vineyards, the old grapes aren't allowed, so it's bottled as Vin de France.  The winemaking is pretty old school, too.  All the grapes are tossed into the vat together, covered with some dry ice, and allowed to start fermentation as they will.  10 days in the fermenter, a few months resting in tank, and then ready for you to slurp!

It's friendly from the first sniff, with open, generous, aromas of crushed black raspberries, sweet cherry, violets, and a hint of ripe black olive.  Take a sip and let the party begin!  This wine just oozes sweet, fresh, very ripe red and black cherry/berry fruit with a touch of cracked pepper, lavender and rich loamy earth for complexity.  Juicy and mouthwatering, but not at all tart, with a bit of Black Forest cake (chocolate and sweet cherry) coming up on the supple, lingering, finish.  Sure, it's going to go swell with all kinds of casual foods - burgers, hot dogs, pizza, stews - but it will shine most brightly when shared with (soon to be very happy) friends!

Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2015 Product #31235 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2015 Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2015

As the Post says, Austria's 2015s “are among the best white wines in the world in terms of value and quality, and they’re enjoying the best vintage in recent memory.”   Certainly, this is the best vintage of this stunning value single-vineyard Gruner to date!  There’s a refreshing salty brininess to the aromas here, along with fresh pear and meyer lemon. On the palate there’s a pleasing weightiness from that extra notch of ripeness 2015’s near perfect conditions brought that you wouldn’t expect from all those brisk, fresh aromas. That pear aroma takes on a lovely ripeness, and there’s a delicious ripe apple flavor as well, like biting into a fresh Honeycrisp. A refreshing, versatile white.

“Notes of crisp green pear and crunchy red apple are very appetizing, the palate is fresh and echoes these flavors and edges them with some spice and alcoholic heat, but also has a drive and energy of its own. Friendly and very moreish.”Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Proemio Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2015 Proemio Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2015

Here's a real winner in the "A Lot of Wine For The Money: Cab Division."  This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown at 2,300 feet elevation, where plenty of sunshine ripens the fruit to rich perfection and cool night air locks in freshness and vibrancy.  You'll love the big Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of blackcurrant, cassis, tobacco, and chocolate.  In the mouth, it's ripe and densely packed with currant, cherry, black raspberry spice and chocolate flavors.  There's a nice herb and chocolate complexity here, but the fruit really holds center stage.  Big enough for steak or lamb, but easygoing enough to just drink at a party or on the deck, this is outstanding value in rich, drinkable, Cab.

Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2012 Product #31382 (In Stock)
Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2012 Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2012

This has been a Spanish value staple for years now, and the 2012 is yet another fine Toro Tempranillo.  The wine is 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo), hand harvested from vines 30+ years-old. There’s plenty of ripe Temparnillo fruit here – cherry, blackberry and plum – and very nice doses of wood spice and the grape’s exotic sandalwood fragrance.  But cool nights on the vine and careful treatment in the winery leave a bright, refreshing, acidity in place as well and the smooth, refined, tannins don’t get in the way of solo sipping pleasure.  A lot of wine for a very  modest price and the best release yet from this perennial value leader.

Juicy and fleshy on the palate with smooth, supple, tannins and a nice lash of black fruit, smoke and spice on the smooth, fresh, finish.  Easy drinking fun.

Burgundy for party or shellfish or just a nicely roasted bird.

From the fine co-op in Tavel, this GSM blend shows off Tavel's best grape - Mourvedre - with style.  The aromas are rich, earthy, and loaded with garrigue and dark black fruit.  The dark blackberry and black raspberry fruit forms the core of the palate, with more of Mourvedre's classic earth and garrigue tones adding interest and a nice dose of firm tannin at the end.  Old-school fun.
